Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battlestar Galactica Online] Cylon pilots?

yah in the series the raiders are separate from the centurions (the giant humanoid robot guy you control while out of your ship); and just to be clear the raiders are NOT controlled by the centurions in any way

the centurions are completely robotic but have a ration intelligence (until the skin-jobs inhibited their reason and self-awareness)

the raiders are biological and are like animals; the pets of the cylons

also, the centurions care about the raiders as it is shown when they get p***ed when they learn the raiders where getting lobotomized

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why are people still religious?

It is true that science cannot prove the existence or nonexistence of god. Unfortunately science cannot separate right from wrong and good from bad. Religion however, is able to do so.

And how exactly does religion do that?
By writing all “the rules” in a holy book and calling it “the word of God”.

You are correct in saying that science cannot determine right or wrong but SOCIETY can.
If Religion was still used as the sole basis of our morales then we would:
Still see slavery as acceptable (and have some very nice guidelines on “How to treat your slave”)
Murder interfaith couples
Murder those who reject Jesus
Find homosexuality unacceptable
Amongst MANY MANY other things!

If anything the religous doctrine has held back the progression of our morales!

there is a major Christian religion that promotes the murder of interfaith couples and those who reject Jesus!?!!?! isolated instances (for lack pf a better way to phrase it) don’t count because there are always haters and insain people who will CHANGE religion to justify their own actions

also, without the Catholic Faith at least, women would probably still be treated as property, the idea of loving even your enemies would not be brought into the world, among other things

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why are people still religious?

you know what I find extremely ironic, atheists call people who believe in God irrational and unscientific, when, in truth, that describes the atheists

man is religious because it is his nature, on account of his reason; the existence of a God is so obvious that it is useless to argue the existence of a God to an atheist because they are not using reason

what about unscientific? well everything we currently know about science demands a God; that nothing can come from nothing; the best answer I got from an atheist on how the universe started is that there are others way it could have happened we do not know of; of course our current knowledge of science forbids that; but I am told, there MIGHT be a new discovery in science (which to me is just a reasonable as someone saying one believes there is a God because science might find undeniable proof for His existence [not to be confused with science not leaving any doors open for any other explanation])

Topic: Serious Discussion / Conversion:Right or Wrong

@ Cammy_Justice

if conversion is so unimportant then why are you trying to convert us into believing that conversion is unimportant? kindof self-contradictory

also, can an “ax:” to this trend saying “ax: religion is important” or something like that

Topic: Serious Discussion / Conversion:Right or Wrong

err apparently your definition of conversion is different then mine so I check the google definition

“a spiritual enlightenment causing a person to lead a new life”
and
“a change of religion”
are the most relevant definitions to this discussion

first of all, no one can FORCE one to convert; they can pressure them but in the end its their own choice (think of all the Catholic martyrs; when in Rome, kill the Christians :P)

second, it depends on how you try to convert someone; if you force it at the point of a sword, your not gona get a real conversion and this type of “converting” is bad

converting someone into what you honestly believe is a better life, however, through fair and good ways (like telling them honest and non-deceitful reasons why that life is better) is good (since it shows charity)

for example, a Catholic (who believes that their is no salvation outside the Church) trying to convert a non-Catholic into the Church

Topic: Serious Discussion / If You could choose where your taxes went...

most would go to the local government and the rest would go to the national government for stuff like the army and other stuff ONLY the national government could handle

of course that would mean the politicians would not get their million dollar balls and outrageous health care (among other things) so like as if we are ever gona get a real say in were our money goes :/

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should Humans Be Extinct?

my Catholic view:

all humans are created with the intent to be good; they, however, have the free will to chose, either for bad or for good

that choice is theirs, and theirs alone; they will receive reward or punishment; we have no right to judge another person’s morality (that is, thou we can condemn some of their acts as evil, we cannot judge their guilt)

Topic: Serious Discussion / What do you think about the crusades and all others religious wars?

well lets look at why the Crusades were fought:

from wiki:
“The Crusades originally had the goal of recapturing Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Muslim rule and their campaigns were launched in response to a call from the Christian Byzantine Empire for help against the expansion of the Muslim Seljuk Turks into Anatolia”

now lets look at the Catholic Just War Doctrine:

“1. the damage inflicted by the aggressor on the nation or community of nations must be lasting, grave, and certain;

2. all other means of putting an end to it must have been shown to be impractical or ineffective;

3. there must be serious prospects of success;

4. the use of arms must not produce evils and disorders graver than the evil to be eliminated. The power of modern means of destruction weighs very heavily in evaluating this condition"
(from http://www.ewtn.com/expert/answers/just_war.htm)

for 1. a brief look through the history of that time can tell you the Muslims where very aggressive

for 2. I don’t know if this was done for a fact, but from what I read of history, the Muslims did not seem like anything war would stop them

for 3. they had a pretty large army and even captured Jerusalem once

for 4. this is quite a gray area; what needs to be remembered is that they lived at that moment we did not

for all these points, I invite any corrections, ect. you can offer

Topic: Kongregate / kongstop

haha, I was a first confused because I concentrated on the “Stop” part (thought it was an easter egg) and taught it would link me to something else (like they did with the “I like turtles” achievement)

then I saw it read kongstop, and knowing that kong is owned by gamestop, realized it was a joke

I did not know it was April fools so I assumed it was a little joke they just decided to have, or, as I guessed, it was inspired by a resent string of post by anti-gamestopiests calling kongregate kongstop (aka gamestop’s bet) (not saying that there is; I just guessed this)

well people can do what I do; camp where I think someone will be heading, kill a few people, move, kill a few people, and then camp in a different spot

but that is more ambushing then camping…

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / About camping

D; and that will be my final answer

anyways, back on topic, everyone who thinks that camping is cowardly is, to be honest, is a n00b who, since he can’t kill campers, degrades them
